Ride Details

Cycle 4 Change is a small ride for cyclists who want to ride some big distances in a short amount of time.

Cycle 4 Change is an annual cycling event that is hosted in a different location each year. The 2020 ride is located in Yarra Valley, Victoria, with past rides happening in central north Tasmania (2016), and Canberra and the Snowy Mountains (2017).

This cycling event was set up by a group of riders that wanted to ride in different locations and to make an impact in the lives of kids who have suffered abuse or neglect. Funds raised are donated to Southern Cross Kids’ Camps. This is not-for-profit organisation that provides annual camps for children across Australia.

The 2020 ride is based around the local hills in the hinterland country around Warburton in the Dandenongs. They plan to do the iconic climbs and hills from the area that send a shiver into the legs of sprinters and flatlanders. Best to bring your best mt goat shoes as most days average over 2000+m.

Over 4 days the Cycle 4 Change will cover a challenging ride of more than 500km and over 8000m of climbing.

Day 1: Mt Dandenog return via Yellingbo and Gembrook 136km
Day 2: Marysville via Lake Mountain to Warburton 110km
Day 3: Kinglake via Mt Slide and Punt road wines 133km
Day 4: Mt Donna Buang 93km

Numbers for this ride are limited to 30 riders for this year. There is a waitlist available, and registrations require the fundraising to be achieved first before being granted.

The weather for this time of year in the Yarra Valley is well into autumn and would be considered temperate cool to warm. Expect minimums of 5-10 degrees and maximums of 15-25 degrees. There is some chance of rain and when if does, it should only be a light drizzle but then again it may be the full monty.
